Todd Rose brings a background in cognitive neuroscience, dynamic systems, and developmental psychology to his work at CAST. Dr. Rose is interested in the ways perception, attention, and working memory interact to shape learning, and in the development of tools that support the recognition and strategic components of Universal Design for Learning.
Before joining CAST, Dr. Rose was a post-doctoral fellow with the Laboratory for Visual Learning (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics), where his work included NSF-funded research on the link between dyslexia and visual abilities in astrophysics. His previous work includes research on the impact of fixational eye motions on visual learning, the influence of working memory on reading fluency, and the application of dynamic systems concepts to theories of development. Dr. Rose has also served on U.S. and international panels evaluating the promise and future of neuroscience in education.
Dr. Rose currently serves on faculty at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, where he teaches a course on Educational Neuroscience, and he is co-chair of the summer institute for Mind, Brain, and Education sponsored by Harvard. Dr. Rose lectures nationally and internationally on learning disabilities, the importance of working memory in K-12 classrooms, and the role of neuroscience in education.
